Brad followed the path of many young men. In his early twenties, he was a weightlifter, often in the gym six days a week. Yet he did not feel fit. “I woke up with pain every day. My lower back was so bad I couldn’t stand up straight when I got out of bed in the morning.”
He was overweight, and as he took up cycling, his situation didn’t improve. He began to experience stabbing pains when he pedaled. One day…the turning point…was when he simply leaned forward to pick something up. He heard a “pop” and suddenly was in excruciating pain.
He was diagnosed with degenerative disk disease, scoliosis, and arthritis in his spine.
“I began working with a physical therapist that helped me change my lifestyle through exercise and sound nutrition. I slowly but steadily improved. I started to educate myself to continue reducing my pain and return to an active life.”
This journey of self-education resulted in a change of careers for Brad. He dedicated not only his personal well-being but also his professional future to health and fitness. “Now, nearly 20 years later, I am 50lbs lighter, stronger than ever, and can ride my bike 100 miles without back pain.
“It has been my mission for the past 18 years to share my experiences and knowledge so that I can help others enjoy the benefits I have achieved through proper exercise and lifestyle habits.”
Brad’s holistic approach to health and fitness has led him to pursue certifications through the world’s most forward-thinking holistic health and fitness organizations. Brad’s philosophy on integrating assessment, lifestyle, and functional conditioning parallels the mission of these organizations and leaves our members feeling stronger, rejuvenated, and successful.
When not training or studying, Brad enjoys riding motorcycles, spending time with his best friend Trudy, B-movies, and playing bass in the 70’s tribute band PetRock.Work with Brad
